Congratulations to Rotary District 5150's Rotarian of the Month - December 2020, Jon Kaufman from the Rotary Club of Peninsula Starlight.
Jon has been a member of Rotary for nine years. He is one of the most generous individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is the founder of H2OpenDoors, author of “Long Walk on a Dry Road: The Education of a Water Warrior,” and a Charter Member of the Rotary Club of Peninsula Starlight.

As a Peninsula Starlight Charter Member, he brought a level of energy that was contagious; he was one of the sponsors for our official launch party in January 2019 bringing amazing posters that inspired a vision of what Rotary could be. He helped us develop our bylaws and made sure that everyone knows how cool Peninsula Starlight is.

Jon is one of our top recruiters—sponsoring three new members. He donates his time to help us with our local community service projects, whether it is serving food at the Fair Oaks Community Center or tending bar at other Rotary Fundraisers to raise funds for our own club. You can always count on Jon to jump in with a smile and a helping hand. He is also been known to be seen in the local grocery store picking up groceries for his neighbors that have needed some help during this pandemic.

It is a great honor to have this extraordinary man as our chosen family!   Thank you, Jon, for all that you do to make the world a better place!

Past DG Jeri Fujimoto states:

The words, ethical, generous, innovative, kind, and action oriented, all come to my mind when describing Jon Kaufman, the co-Owner of KLP Marketing and the CEO of H2OpenDoors and proud member of the Rotary Club of Peninsula Starlight. He is always willing to donate and support Rotarians throughout District 5150 to ensure success for their projects and fundraisers. Many Rotarians have had the joy and heart-opening experiences of participating in H2OpenDoors adventures that he curates for much-needed clean and sustainable water projects throughout the world.

Once again, congratulations to Jon Kaufman from the Rotary Club of Peninsula Starlight as our "Rotarian of the Month" in December 2020!
